Louisiana Woman Invited by BP to Hear Their Side of the Gulf Oil-Spill Cleanup Story Blows the Whistle!
A south Lousiana mother of two was selected from among the questioners at a town-hall meeting to be given insider clearance by BP to see what has been going on in the Gulf of Mexico since the blowout of BP's DeepWater Horizon oil well. Well, BP -- and the U.S. Coast Guard(!) -- explained that they both provide respirators and manditory respirator training whenever needed ...but that neither was needed in the Gulf because everything "is O.K." there. Asked why 7 workers were evacuated with health problems, the BP rep cited food poisoning and heat exhaustion. Next asked about the 9/11 first responders' dust-related health problems, this bozo actually claimed that BP was "Johnny on the spot" offering them respirators, but the firemen refused their offer(!!!). She learned that BP uses the phrase "ponies and balloons" to mean deploying safety assets only when an official visits, and then standing-down 80% of these assets when the official leaves. She alleges BP have used influence to systematically pull footage from FOX News and Australia's 60 minutes. And what's more she's a terrific speaker!
